Fire and ice. Hot and cold. An abandoned inn turned luxury hotel. ION Luxury Adventure Hotel is where modern design meets Iceland’s incomparable natural landscape. Situated in Nesjavellir by Lake Thingvellir in the south-west, near a national crossroad making the hotel accessible to various parts of the country, ION is conveniently located to offer guests the best of Iceland. From the volcanic marvels of Mount Hengill to the urban sophistication of Reykjavik nearby, the unique landscape plays a pivotal role in the rich design of the hotel, which leans heavily on sustainable practices and the natural features of the island. Throughout 45 rooms, guests can expect a mellow mix of concrete chic and earthy ambiance, combined with the warm accents of locally salvaged driftwood and lava; all deftly handled by design studio Minarc. Beyond this, the farm-fresh cuisine at Silfra Restaurant & Bar, view-heavy Northern Lights Bar and partially exposed Lava Spa all ensure that visitors have the ultimate Icelandic experience before even stepping foot outside.
